MIUI 12 wallpaper download
Before we go ahead and tell you the steps, you need to make sure that your Android smartphone is eligible to get these new wallpapers. This means that your Android device should be running at least Android Oreo 8.1 or above in order to be able to install the Super Wallpapers, otherwise unfortunately you won’t be able to download them. With that said, follow these steps:
- On your Android smartphone, go to Google Chrome and click here. This is the MIUI 12 wallpaper download link.
After the page is loaded, scroll down a bit and tap the green button that says Click Here to Start Download. Now, wait for a couple of seconds until the website loads some links.
Next, tap the first link from the list. You’ll get a prompt asking if you want to download this file, continue by tapping download.
Once the file is downloaded, go to your phone’s File Manager and locate the downloaded file. Now tap the file to install it.
You will now be able to set these beautiful wallpapers on your Android device by just going to the stock wallpaper settings on your phone. To access these wallpapers, you can long-press on the home-screen and tap Wallpapers on most Android phones. However, it can vary by device.
In our case, we tested this on a OnePlus 6T running Android 10 and this method worked perfectly fine for us with the wallpapers present right there along with the other stock wallpapers on our device.
However, if the wallpapers don’t show up even after installation, you might need to install the Google Wallpapers app from Google Play. That should definitely sort out the problem.
By following these steps you’ll be able to get these cool new MIUI 12 wallpapers on your Android smartphone. As we mentioned earlier, make sure that you have an Android Oreo 8.1 or above device and you’ll be good to go.
